Why ProLife?: Caring for the Unborn and Their Mothers
Why ProLife? offers factual answers to the central issues of the abortion debate in a concise, non-abrasive way. Infused with grace and compassion, and grounded in medical science and psychological studies, Randy Alcorn presents a solid case for defending both unborn children and their mothers. (Thoroughly revised and updated 2012 edition.)
Chapters such as, “What Makes a Human Life ‘Meaningful,’” “Is Abortion Really a Women’s Rights Issue,” and “How Can I Help Unborn Babies and Their Mothers” help readers to look at the many sides of this polarizing issue. For those on the fence in the midst of the abortion debate, this book will be a great resource as it clearly and thoroughly examines the prolife position. For those who are prolife already, this book is an encouragement to be intelligently and graciously informed.
“Why ProLife? is an invaluable resource for anyone trying to help a friend or family member understand the prolife perspective. With clear, compelling language, Randy Alcorn lays out the case for life, using the power of both reason and emotion.” —Charles W. Colson
What's new in this 2012 updated edition?
Why ProLife? was first published in 2004. But technology changes, statistics become dated, and new resources, stories, and discussions arise. It was time for a thorough update and revision. The changes are too numerous to mention individually, but every sentence in the book was gone over while revising and updating. Hardly a paragraph of the original has remained unedited, and much new material has been added.
